The organisation has planned an interesting addition to the Saturday evening program. Following the EDS-auction on Saturday August 5th, Diederik and Alex van Silfhout will enter the arena with Vivaldi-zon Expression, former contestant at the World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses. In 2015, Diederik and this young powerhouse participated in the world championships in Verden and obtained a respectable sixth place in the final. Alex and Diederik trained the KWPN stallion further on and in 2017 Diederik and Expression became the uncontested Dutch champion in the Small Tour.
These gentlemen have proven their capability to educate a horse up to Grand Prix level or even into an Olympic participant. With Arlando, Diederik represented the Netherlands in the 2016 Olympic Games of Rio. During the training clinic at the World Breeding Dressage Championships for Young Horses the duo will explain what the training of Expression looked like after the World Championships and how they will continue their path towards Grand Prix.
It is now possible to order entrance tickets for the 2017 FEI World Breeding Dressage Championships for five-, six- and seven-year-old horses via www.ermeloyh.com. In the presale a discount applies for KWPN- and KNHS members.
